Walker Inn, Andrews, NC -- Built in 1840, the original log structure contained two rooms on the ground floor and two rooms above with a separate kitchen at the rear of the house. By 1864 the house had been expanded to its present state -- a spacious colonial dwelling with a 30 foot dining room connecting the kitchen to the rest of the house. Iron pots still hang from the mantel of the six-foot fireplace used for cooking meals. Wrought iron door hinges, antique door latches, ceiling beams and bubble glass windows are a few of the unique and original features of this historic inn. Many other furnishings and accessories throughout the house are Walker Inn heirlooms, and antiques of American origin predominate. The Walker Inn is an original stage coach stop between Asheville and Murphy.
